LAPT Playa Conchal: BrenesWatch, Part 1
Within the first 71 minutes of the tournament, Alex Brenes experienced quite the roller-coaster ride when it comes to his chip count. Starting with the standard 20,000 in chips, Alex's stack dipped to 5,200 within the first five minutes of play. Then he snatched up a huge pot, taking his stack back up to 17,000, only to give most of his winnings back on a subsequent hand, his chip count falling back down to 7,000. While a lesser player might simply throw up his hands in anguish, Alex hunkered down and found a bit of run-good, grinding his stack back up to a far more workable 23,000. He has his work cut out for him today, with Gualter "stockcar99" Salles directly to his right.
